Kevin Durant mum on future after touring Warriors’ new arena

Kevin Durant

They have that luxury because they were lucky enough to find Quinn Cook 13 months ago and wise enough to sign him to a contract six months after that.

Kevin Durant scored 28 points and unheralded Quinn Cook delivered 27 as the defending champion Golden State Warriors rallied without injured star Stephen Curry to beat the Brooklyn Nets 116-100. Coach Steve Kerr said it doesn't appear to be significant.

Cook was a beast in his first start of the season, making 11-of-16 shots including three 3-pointers.

Brandon Ingram finished with 12 points and eight rebounds for the Lakers, who have won four of their last five games. That shouldn't come as a surprise, as Durant was also the featured guest during the groundbreaking ceremony a year ago.

Cook hasn't played much this season but said the experience he got past year was a big factor in keeping him ready when his turn came up. This was the same for Cook as he scored a season-high twenty-seven points versus the Nets on Saturday night. "He doesn't feel entitled or feel like he has to play. Consistency is what you want in this league as a player". He's still looking and staying engaged in the game and thinking the game. "When his number is called he is able to go out there and produce". "That's because of the work he puts in every day".

In the 2018 season, Cook now averages 8.9 points, 1.8 rebounds, and 1.6 assists per game.


Curry (groin) left Thursday's loss to the Bucks in the third quarter.

The 30-year-old made the comments during a guided tour of the Chase Center, which will be the Warriors new home from next season.

"Our guys do great job of always making you feel important, making you feel like a part of the team, even when you're not playing", Cook said.

There is no knowing when Curry will return. "It just goes to show you we don't let the game bother us, or become a problem".

The Warriors were also without Draymond Green, but nine time all-star Durant carried the club on his back as they snapped Brooklyn's three-game winning streak. He is. But his versatility broadens his role, giving the coaching staff flexibility in using him.

"We didn't cave in on our principles", James said. "He's a great fit for us".
